This is the full 7-12-09 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
Interview with former Honduran immigrant, Chicagoan and one of the founders of the Latin American cultural and political activist organization La Voz de los de Abajo about the military coup which took place in Honduras on June 28th 2009. Manuel Zelaya, the democratically elected president of Honduras, came into office as a conservative leaning politician drawn from the nation’s traditional land owning elite. But his more recent embrace of moderate social reform and a left turn in politics sweeping Latin America in the past decade, has won him the support of his country’s peasant organizations and labor unions and the wrath of the oligarchy. What is behind the recent coup and what can labor movement and human rights activist in the U.S. do to support a return to democracy in Honduras?
